Shimmer Resist

Well…as promised…I’m back with another fab technique.  This is the first time I have tried this and I have to say it’s something that I am going to use over and over again.   It’s much easier than I thought it would be and I know you will love the result. Why not give it a go?

Instructions

  • Pour a small amount of Frost White Shimmer Paint on to a paper plate.
  • With a piece of loosely screwed up cling wrap, apply paint to glossy white card stock.  Allow to dry.
  • Using a brayer and ink pad (I used real red), roll colour onto the brayer and then roll over the cardstock until you get the desired shade of colour.
  • In a circular motion, rub a cotton wool ball over the card to remove excess ink.

There you have it.  Your own hand-made card stock.

I’ve used my shimmery card to make the hearts on this sweet valentine’s card and I’ve entered it into this week’s Less is More Challenge.  It’s been a while since I have gone back to basics and think this sketch is simply stylish so I thought I’d give it a go.

And here is the sketch
